In the last 15 years we have seen a significant increase of interest in agent-oriented technology. It is crucial that both academics and industrialists within Europe have access to a forum at which current research and application issues are presented and discussed. The aim of this fourth European Workshop on MultiAgent Systems is to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial European efforts.
Submissions of papers describing relevant preliminary or completed work (both unpublished and previously published) are invited. Submissions should be of no more than 5000 words and in a standard existing conference format. The workshop has no formal proceedings; it is intended primarily as a forum for interaction and discussion. Submissions concerning work that has recently been or will be presented at relevant international conferences are also welcome. The workshop will provide: informal working notes at the event, an on-line proceedings containing original papers and abstracts of previously published papers. Depending on the quality, we intend to invite a selection of the unpublished submissions to be included in relevant journal special issues.
